The university community is invited to watch Coleman deliver this announcement at 11 a.m. via a live Web stream link.

The address will highlight research and academic achievements, as well as report operational findings from the Campus Sustainability Integrated Assessment, a two-year project that examined environmental sustainability on campus.

More than 500 students, faculty and staff from 101 organizational units and 27 academic programs collaborated to conduct the assessment. The group members invested their time, knowledge, experience and expertise to provide recommendations in the following areas: buildings, energy sources, transportation, land and water, food, purchasing and recycling, and culture.
